The RuneQuest Playtest Manuscript

The RuneQuest Classic Kickstarter is just about to commence and here’s a sneak peek at one of the special items being offered – the Runequest Playtest Manuscript.

This is a 250+ page hardcover book created from high resolution scans of the original playtest manuscript. This manuscript is the only known set of playtest notes in existence, which have been lovingly kept in a binder for the last 40 years. This playtest material was used to create the first edition of RuneQuest.

The Kickstarter reproduction also features newly written introductory essays by Steve Perrin and Greg Stafford. It’s going to be available at the Rune Lord-Priest and High Priest backer levels.
